I sing Tributes to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Glenn Campbell, Engelbert Humperdinck, Etc...
My 5 "Little Ventriloquist Friends" sing Tributes to Willie Nelson, Dean Martin, Ray Price,etc.
In addition to my Variety show, I perform the Dew It - Sayno Puppets... an Anti-Drug program teaching little kids "How to Say NO" and I also discus that "Reading is "fun" with Little Billie.(By Reading books, You can go on an "IMAGINATION VACATION)"
This show can be booked at an Elementary School or Library during the day when I book my Variety show in that Area during the Evening.
As I offer several things, I "Customize" each show to the client's needs.
Gary did a very good job of reading the audience and connecting with them.
His impersonations were very entertaining, with humor and music and a nice touch of nostalgia. A Seasoned entertainer who knows what he is doing.
Gary is also very friendly and nice to work with.
Our event was a customer appreciation night which consisted of approximately 800 people. He put on a very enjoyable show for all. We would recommend him for an event and would even have him in our store again!
